  • A poro-hyper-viscoelastic rate-dependent constitutive modeling for the analysis of brain tissues. [Journal Article]
    J Mech Behav Biomed Mater 2019; 102:103475Hosseini-Farid M, Ramzanpour M, … Karami G
  • In this paper, the dynamic behavior of bovine brain tissue, measured from in-vitro unconfined compression tests, is examined and represented through a viscoelastic biphasic model. The experiments have been carried out under three compression speeds of 10, 100, and 1000 mm/s. The results exhibited significant rate-dependent behavior. The brain tissue is modeled as a biphasic continuum consisting o…
  • Permanent immunosuppression in SLA/LP-positive autoimmune hepatitis is required although overall response and survival are similar. [Journal Article]
    Liver Int 2019Zachou K, Weiler-Normann C, … Dalekos GN
  • CONCLUSIONS: We showed that anti-SLA/LP antibodies do not characterise a group of AIH patients with distinct features and cannot identify patients with a more severe form of the disease or worse survival. Most importantly however, anti-SLA/LP-positive patients appear to require life-long immunosuppression as they are less likely to achieve cessation of corticosteroids and present higher relapse rates after treatment withdrawal. Therefore, close long-term monitoring should be advised in all anti-SLA/LP-positive patients after withdrawal of immunosuppressive treatment.
  • What affects length of hospital stay? A case study from Malta. [Journal Article]
    J Health Organ Manag 2019; 33(6):714-736Abela L, Pace A, Buttigieg SC
  • CONCLUSIONS: The findings emerging from a single case study approach cannot be generalised across settings and contexts, albeit being in line with the current literature.The study concludes that a robust hospital strategy, which addresses deficient organisational processes that may unnecessarily prolong LOS, is needed. Moreover, the hospital's strategy must be sustained by providing good primary care facilities within the community set-up, as well as by providing more long-term care and rehabilitation beds to support the hospital turnover.The subject of LOS in hospitals has so far been tackled in a fragmented manner. This paper provides a comprehensive and triangulated account of the complexities surrounding the duration in which patients are kept in hospital by key stakeholders, most of whom were hands-on in the day-to-day running of the hospital under study.
  • Material-selective doping of 2D TMDC through AlxOy encapsulation. [Journal Article]
    ACS Appl Mater Interfaces 2019Leonhardt A, Chiappe D, … De Gendt S
  • For the integration of 2D Transition Metal Di-Chalcogenides (TMDC) with high performance electronic systems, one of the greatest challenges is the realization of doping and comprehension of its mechanisms. Low temperature atomic layer deposition of aluminum oxide is found to n-dope MoS2 and ReS2, but not WS2. Based on electrical, optical, and chemical analysis, we propose and validate a hypothesi…
